The Nichiban Group was founded in 1918 as a manufacturer and seller of adhesive plasters and ointments (Utahashi Pharmaceutical Office Co., Ltd.), and has grown into the Nichiban Group today, despite many difficulties, celebrating its 100th anniversary. Taking this opportunity, we reviewed our existing corporate philosophy and created a new “Nichiban Group Philosophy”.
As before, the basic principle is to “Nichiban respects people's cooperative relationships and strives to foster prosperity and happiness for all stakeholders of Nichiban Group.”, and we have added the new phrase “valuing bonds” to intend to value ties with more stakeholders. Through our adhesive technology that we have cultivated over many years, we want to contribute to a sustainable society by continuing to create products with new value that will contribute to a healthy and comfortable life for everyone.
In FY2019, the Nichiban Group launched a new five-year medium-term management plan 【ISHIZUE 2023 ～SHINKA・変革～】 for its medium to long-term 『NICHIBAN GROUP 2030 VISION.』 In order to realize “innovation, creation of new growth value” and “promotion of a global company” as set out in the medium to long-term vision, we will promote the evolution, deepening and reform of initiatives for priority themes based on solid corporate quality.
We look forward to continued support and guidance from our stakeholders.
